Following on from successful conferences held since 2006, the European Physical Society and CLEO®/Europe-EQEC in collaboration with the Chairs of ECOC 2016 are delighted to announce the organisation of a special CLEO Focus Meeting on Fundamental Photonics for Future Telecommunications, to be held as part of ECOC 2016 from 18-22 September 2016 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

New developments and trends on emerging and highly forward-looking research in photonics will be at the heart of this special CLEO Focus Meeting, complementary to the regular ECOC sessions. The meeting will showcase state-of-the-art results which bridge the gap between basic science and applications.

The scope includes, but is not limited to, digital and optical signal processing, nano-photonics, plasmonics, nonlinear optics, novel materials including meta-materials, novel devices, spatio-temporal complex nonlinear dynamics, optical angular momentum research, quantum optics, emerging ultra-fast technologies, new concepts in optical generation including super-continuum sources, optical rogue waves and frequency combs, multimode systems, beam manipulation and wave-guiding, and other optical communication and processing related topics.

A deadline later in 2016 for postdeadline papers will shortly be announced.

“Enrico Fermi” School dedicated to the Foundations of Quantum Theory

Triggered by the rapid advance of experimental techniques in quantum optics and the development of the field of quantum technology, the underlying question of the interpretation of quantum mechanics has recently received a lot of attention again.

This “Enrico Fermi” Summer School provides an overview of recent theoretical and experimental developments of the foundations of quantum mechanics to students, post-docs and scientists interested in this field.
